It feels like only yesterday we were gearing up for a snowy Los Santos and bringing in the Christmas spirit. Fast-forward a few days – the snow has cleared and we’re saying goodbye to all the Festive Content.

But as GTA Online loses content, Rockstar also adds it and also showcases offers and discounts for lots of its existing content too.

Thanks to GTA Online leaker TezFunz2, here’s everything you need to know about the December 31 update.

GTA Online Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

To try and maintain the holiday spirit, the Diamond Casino & Resort has updated its Lucky Wheel car with a new prize in the form of the fast, Omnis sportscar.

The Omnis is worth $701,000 and here’s the official description of the vehicle:

The Obey Omnis was the poster child of the golden age of rallying, a period of deregulated innocence when a turbo-charged tin can could plough through a crowd of spectators on a muddy embankment and there wasn’t a damn thing the government could do about it. This is one for the fans.

How to get the Terminator skin set in Fortnite

Epic Games have brought brand new Terminator-themed skins to Fortnite Season 5, and here’s how you can get them.

Terminator set in Fortnite

As Fortnite Season 5 comes closer to its end, new crossovers are being added to the Battle Royale. Now, Epic Games have brought along the T-800 and Sarah Connor as part of a new Terminator skin set.

Fortnite has seen more than its fair share of crossovers throughout the past few years. We’ve seen additions from Halo, God of War, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, and many others. Epic Games have now brought another new addition to the Battle Royale.

Less than a week after the arrival of The Predator, the developers have added brand new Terminator-themed skins to the game. You can choose to play as either the T-800 or Sarah Connor, and here’s how you can get your hands on them.

How to get T-800 and Sarah Connor Fortnite skins

You don’t need to do any special quest or challenge in order to get these skins. You can get yourself the Fortnite x Terminator crossover set by spending some V-Bucks in the Item Shop.

You can pick up the Sarah Connor skin for 1,800, or pay 1,500 to get the T-800. Alternatively, you can purchase the entire bundle for 2,800, which may sound like a lot but you’ll also get some great savings.

You can take a closer look at the prices of the Fortnite Future War set below:

  • Future War Bundle: 2,800 V-Bucks
  • Sarah Connor: 1,800 V-Bucks
  • T-800: 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Techno-Grip Axe: 800 V-Bucks
  • Cyberdyne Salute: 300 V-Bucks

If you purchase the Future War Bundle, then you will also be able to acquire the exclusive T-800 Endoskeleton Arm and HK Skynet Uplink Back Blings, along with the Combat Knife pickaxe. That makes this worth the money you spend.

We don’t know exactly how much longer these skins will be available in the Item Shop, so you’d better hurry up if you want to get your hands on them.

Resident Evil 8 Village promises to be another terrifying foray into the unknown. To make sure you’re prepared, we have compiled a guide containing information about its release date, key story details, characters, gameplay info, and more.

Thanks to the terrific return to form in Resident Evil 7, the long-running horror show continues onwards to its eighth installment. There will be jump scares and memorable moments galore when we don the shoes of Ethan Winters again.

We are counting down the days until we tangle with tyrannical foes in another journey of psychological insanity. Thanks to some existing information, we know the exact date we’ll be doing this and some of the dangers that await us too.

Resident Evil 8 Village Release Date

The most important detail that people want to know is when they’ll be able to get their hands on the game itself. We’re pleased to report that it’s coming out on May 7, 2021. So there isn’t too much more waiting to do.

There are also different editions of the game you can pick up including the Standard Edition and the Deluxe Edition. The Deluxe Edition includes the following:

  • Safe Room Music: “Go Tell Aunt Rhody”
  • Mr. Everywhere collectible
  • RE7 found-footage filter
  • Tape recorder save device
  • Albert-01 Chris gun
  • The Tragedy of Ethan Winters artwork
  • Unlock “Village of Shadows” difficulty

Resident Evil 8 Village Platforms

For those wondering if Resident Evil 8 is only coming out on the new consoles and PC – it won’t be.

The game will be available at release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Obviously, when you bring up the discussion of last-gen vs. current-gen, there is always going to be an inescapable fidelity issue between the versions.

But if you’re not planning on upgrading anytime soon, then at least you’ll have the option to play it on your current console.

Resident Evil 8 Village Story & Characters

The Resident Evil showcase answered a lot of questions people had regarding the series’ latest iteration. But it has also posed just as many as well.

Long-time hero Chris Redfield has been touted as a potential surprise villain in the newest game with trailers making him out to be an underhanded figure. The latest trailer shows him killing Ethan’s wife and stealing his child. It’s not the usual trademark heroism we’ve come to expect from him. So it’ll be interesting to see which direction Capcom takes him.

Other developments have led to the introduction of Lady Dimitrescu and the Witches Three. Evil and cunning figures that will only seek to make Ethan’s life a living hell.

All of this will be conducted in the Village: a gothic, surreal abode for many deranged creatures and providing little in the way of comfort. Resident Evil 8’s visuals, especially on current-gen, could make the landscape a beautiful prison for Ethan.

Resident Evil 8 Village Gameplay

Resident Evil 7 stripped back a lot of the Hollywood action-hero elements of Resi 6 and returned the gameplay to its roots, pacing the game around slower and more methodical gameplay, making you conscious of ammo, and inducing OCD because of your inventory.

Resident Evil 8 Village continues a lot of this and brings back the Guard system from the previous game. It also reintroduces some dynamic combat elements such as damaging limbs, and, of course, puzzles.

It also has to be stated that in many respects, Resident Evil 8 resembles Resident Evil 4 – considered by many to be the best in the series. Here some of the ways in which Resi 8 takes inspiration from it:

  • Your items require careful management in your inventory and need rearranging
  • Attache cases can be bought to upgrade your space
  • “What’ll it be stranger?” – It’s not the same fan-favorite merchant, but it has a reoccurring one
  • You need to collect monetary resources to buy stuff
  • The setting

There will also be plenty of puzzles and new weapons and elements for returning, and new, players to enjoy.

Resident Evil 8 Village Demos

You can currently download the Resident Evil 8 Village “Maiden” demo from the PS5 store as it is an exclusive download for Sony’s flagship hardware.

It’s a short, non-combat demo about a character that won’t even be featured in the game. It’s more of a gentle teaser that whets the appetite for the main game.

But if you want your fix now and don’t have a PS5 then fear not. It has been confirmed that another demo for Resident Evil 8 Village will pop-up down the line for all consoles.

The showcase event has really helped to drum up excitement for the hugely-anticipated horror title and it’s sure to be a captivating and disturbing title in a year of potentially great games.

Apex Legends teams hilariously play volleyball in-game with Cargo Bots

Some Apex Legends players went viral after starting a game of Volleyball with Octane’s Jump Pad and a few Cargo Bots.

A few Apex Legends fans stopped a match to play a game of Volleyball with Octane’s Jump Pad and a few Cargo Bots. This led to some hilarious results, and the clip has gone viral in the Apex community.

Apex Legends is known for its massive maps which serve as large-scale playgrounds for you to explore. Through this, you can discover brand new combat strategies, hiding spots, and tricks to practice. Alternatively, you can just mess around.

Players have been discovering fun activities to pass the time in the Battle Royale ever since it first launched. We’ve seen various creative endeavors from fans, and now a new one has been found; playing volleyball with Cargo Bots.

Teams play Cargo Bot volleyball in Apex Legends

Reddit user BeanBag373 posted a fun clip to the Apex Legends subreddit, in which they enacted a brilliant plan with the help of a few other players.

They were able to get their hands on a grounded Cargo Bot and rolled it all the way up to a spot where they had set up a makeshift Volleyball court. This consisted of Octane’s jump pads, and they would use them with Pathfinder’s zipline. 

As time passed, even more players came across this and decided to join in on the fun. Rather than messing things up for everyone, they picked up on the rules and played the game. The clip gets even funnier as more people get involved.

Eventually, someone tried to ruin the fun by shooting up the players. However, they didn’t let this ruin their resolve and continued playing as the circle got even closer. They only stopped once the area became too small to stand in.

At that point, you can predict what happened next. Everybody started shooting at each other and using their Ultimate abilities, which led to mass chaos and mayhem. Sadly, this was inevitable as the shrinking circle incites conflict.

Despite that, this was still a hilarious moment of different players coming together to have dumb fun. This is why you should play Apex Legends creatively since you can discover other neat tricks when messing around.
